Primary responsibilities include execution of existing projects in the general ocean acoustics area and which may include such topics as wave propagation in range-dependent environments, modeling of dynamical phenomena in the ocean, performing inversions for ocean structures using such methods as waveform or traveltime fitting, performing acoustic communications modeling in the ocean, and using acoustics for such purposes as positioning and navigation.

In addition, the candidate should have familiarity with environmental measurements of the ocean state such as in situ probe profiles, surface METOC measurements, satellite measurements of the ocean surface, and an understanding of how such data can be used to estimate ocean models in conjunction with other data e.g., acoustic measurements and/or with methods such as data assimilation.

The candidate will be responsible for new concept development in performance of R&D contracts and will contribute to proposal efforts for new R&D.
